On That’s Amaury’s podcast:
#1 Amaury the A’s open a three game series tonight in Oakland against the Texas Rangers with Jesus Luzardo (0-0) getting the start. Luzardo is coming back from being quarantined after testing positive for Covid-19 during baseball summer camp.
#2 A’s manager Bob Melvin is looking forward to seeing Luzardo on the mound tonight. Luzardo has got some bullpen work in going 6.2 innings in relief and has 1.35 ERA, he had walked three and struck out seven.
#3 How huge is it for A’s hitter Khris Davis to have snapped his 0-16 slump which started from opening day. Davis got a sixth inning single. Melvin said that Davis made a hand adjustment during the trip to Seattle over the weekend.
#4 Melvin said that Davis has established himself and that speaks volumes for somebody whose willing to make an adjustment and that Davis is coachable and “looking forward to getting better.”
#5 In the middle of the four game series in Seattle the A’s won the second and third games by just a run does that speak for the bullpen able to hold off the Mariners in the later innings and prevent them from adding runs on the board.
